Smoking Can Affect Your Vision Health

Smoking is a risk factor for certain eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. This is because it reduces blood flow and nutrient supply to the eyes and increases the amount of toxic substances like tar and nicotine in the body.  Hence, protect your eyes by quitting smoking. Consider taking an eye care supplement that contains Lutein, Zeaxanthin and various antioxidants to reduce age-related vision degeneration.

Eye Exercise

A four-step eye exercise can relieve tired eyes after long hours of working in front of the computer screen. Do it daily, particularly in between breaks from the computer. Step 1: Close your eyes tightly for 3- 5 seconds and open them for 3-5 seconds. Repeat 7-8 times. Step 2: Close your eyes again and massage in circular movements for 1-2 minutes. Step 3: Press three fingers against upper eyelids, hold for 1-2 seconds then release. Repeat 5 times. Step 4: Roll your eyes clockwise, then counter-clockwise, and then blink once. Repeat 5 times.

Practice Good Eating Habit

According to the American Dental Association, consuming a balanced and nutritious diet is an essential aspect of caring for your teeth. Foods that are rich in Calcium and Protein such as dairy products, lean meats, soy products and nuts play an important role in protecting and rebuilding your tooth enamel. It is also important to avoid excessive intake of candy, soft drinks and cookies which can lead to tooth decay due to their high sugar content. 

Why Should You Use Dental Floss?

To have good oral health, it is not enough to brush your teeth twice a day, you need to floss at least once a day too. By flossing daily, plaque is removed from the areas between your teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into tartar. In addition, people who are wearing braces or have big interdental gaps can use a special interdental toothbrush for a more effective cleansing effect.

The Importance Of SLS-Free Shampoo!

Check your shampoo labels and look for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) – a common foaming agent that present in 90% of commercially available shampoos. SLS is able to permeate the skin effectively and concentrate in some organs such as eyes, brain and heart. SLS washes away the hair's moisture and may lead to the premature shedding of hair, clogging hair follicles and hair loss. Therefore, it is important to avoid products containing SLS. Instead seek natural alternatives! AFC Shokaigan Shampoo do not contain SLS but incorporates a natural blend of 10 amino acids to gently but deeply cleanse, unclog hair follicles and regulate scalp pH levels. 

Hair Styling Without Damaging Your Hair

Hair quality can be compromised through the constant exposure to heat through blow-drying or perming. It may result in split ends which are non-reversible, so please ensure that sufficient nourishment is supplied before and after the heat-styling. You can always visit your hair stylist for styling which causes lesser harm. Lastly, always use products that are made of natural ingredients.

Caffeine During Pregnancy

An excess caffeine intake may lead to low birth weight and miscarriage. Caffeine may affect a baby’s growth as it can constrict blood vessels and limit the nutrient that are supplies to baby. Also, caffeine inhibits iron absorption. The low iron stores at the fetal stage leads to a higher risk of iron deficiency during infant development. Yet, pregnant mothers need not avoid caffeine totally. The American Dietetic Association suggests 300mg daily (equals to 3 cups of coffee) as the upper limit of caffeine intake for pregnant women. Other sources of Caffeine include tea, soda, chocolates and energy drink!

Quality sleep for good health

Aim to get a good night’s rest of 6-8 hours of sleep for good health. A lack of sleep can cause muscle aches, dizziness, weight gain, attention deficit and lack of concentration. It can even increase the risk of developing cancer! The Nurses’ Health Study by Harvard University concludes that people who do not get sufficient amounts of sleep are at a much higher risk of developing breast cancer and colon cancer. Sleep helps to promote healthy secretion of Human Growth Hormone and melatonin that prevent aging and testosterone production.

Take 5 from the computer

Computers have become necessities in our daily lives. It’s important to maintain good eye habits and good posture, as long term repeated usage can lead to repetitive strain injury. Ideally, the computer screen should be 18-30 inches away from you. Take short, frequent breaks of at least 30 seconds after every 20 minutes of computer use to rest your muscles and eyes. Bilberry is naturally rich in anthocyanins that alleviate fatigue and guard your eyes against the glaring damage.

Barley grass for beautiful skin.

Barley grass has a wide array of skin-beautifying nutrients. It is naturally rich in Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) that neutralizes  free radicals from sunlight, pollution and so on. SOD is also found to reverse skin scarring. Barley grass also provides chlorophyll that facilitates detoxification for clear and radiant skin. AFC Green Beauty is a unique blend of barley grass, with kale and green tea for detoxification and 2,500mg collagen per serving to enhance skin protection.

Skin friendly fruits

Eating more Vitamin C-rich fruits, such as strawberry, guava, orange, and papaya may help to ward off wrinkles and age-related dryness. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage -- free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Researches suggest that vitamin C may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation and prevent the consequences of long-term sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancer.

Why Japanese are slimmest?

How is it that the Japanese are one of the slimmest people around? Their slimming secrets: Seaweed & Walking. The Japanese have been eating seaweed for centuries. Seaweed is added to many Japanese foods such as sushi, soup and even as garnishing on their rice or noodles. Not only is seaweed high in fibre, it is also rich in nutrients and contains Fucoxanthin, a fat-busting substance. In addition, Japanese office folks walk a lot everyday during their commute as most of them take public transport that requires them to walk 30 minutes or more to the train station and changing trains. We too can emulate the Japanese lifestyle by putting in additional time for walking, be it to the supermarket, an after-dinner stroll or exploring the city on foot during weekends.

Omega-3 fortified foods for health?

Research shows omega-3 fats help keeping heart, joints and brain healthy. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for omega-3 fats in the UK is 450mg for adults and 200mg for children. Recognizing the health benefits of omega-3, a lot of foods are now fortified with this healthy fat. But, are they sufficient to supply the need? To reach the recommended daily amounts, an adult needs to eat 5 omega-3 enriched eggs daily! A 6-ounce salmon has 100 times higher omega-3 content compared with fortified yoghurt. So, go get the salmon or tuna instead!
